The proposed plan would consolidate the agencys senior management and about 1,200 personnel in the Matomic building in Washington, D.C., and put the remaining 1,400 agency employees in four buildings in Bethesda, Maryland. The General Services Administration GSA estimated that the proposed plan would cost about 3 million if the other Federal agencies were relocated to space in suburban Maryland to be vacated by NRC, as contemplated, or about 5.7 million if the agencies were relocated to newly acquired space. The alternative plan discussed in our earlier report would relocate the NRC Commissioners and their staff to an NRC building in Bethesda and move other NRC employees from Bethesda to the Matomic building. The alternative plan would not reduce the number of NRC locations nor permit a large consolidation in one building. It would, however, put about two-thirds of NRCs employees in buildings within a 15-minute walk of each other and would not require moving other Federal agencies out of the Matomic building. We estimated the cost of the alternative option at about 500,000. Author
